something things i hadn't seen before. first paul tsongas started talking about gay issues then bill clinton appeared at the palace theater in may of '92 before a gay audience, before television cameras and national political reporters and made some very concrete promises to the gay crowd he was the presumive nominee then and somebody whose position hadn't done that before and it seemed to me looking at that and looking at the attitude of the republicans what were hammering on gay and lesbian voters and with pat robertson and pat buchanan from the pulpit of the republican national convention, between those two attitudes, those polarizing rejection and acceptance, a national gay block vote formed for the first time and that affected the election in a decisive way. >> rose: what did you do? >> i wrote an op-ed piece for the "new york times" saying it had a huge psychological effect and might fect the election and i wrote it and thinking about it the week after i wrote if this is going to happen, why isn't this a book? and if it's a book why shouldn't i try to do it? >> i remember a friend of m

: it is not light that is needed, but fire! and a series filled with role models for all women clinton: we were breaking new ground. this season, there's only one place that can take you anyplace. attenborough: isn't it wonderful? pbs for artists, one tremendous thing about pbs is that it makes art accessible by putting it on a platform where millions of people can access it for free. on pbs, many people have seen something they would never see otherwise. the language of music so universal, it can touch someone anywhere. and we need it. we need music, we need dance, we need great theater. we need all these things for our soul, you know, for joy and peace in our lives. after all these millennia, art is still something that survives. a lot of people don't have the means or aren't even aware that's something out there, and they may flip on pbs and e something that wakes up that integral part of being a human being which is enjoying the arts of other human beings. i feel like that's important to me. so i'm grateful for pbs {thank you} as an artist and as a viewer.

visible about it. helping to block. the conviction of bill clinton of impeachment. i've done a lot of work for affordable housing, rental housing. i understand the rap on me and other liberals is we push poor people into homeownership. and it's exactly the opposite of the case. we were trying to prevent those kinds of bad loans. and i'm beginning to see a substantial reduction in america's military budget and doing away with the notion that 65 years after world war ii we continue to have to protect the whole world. >> reporter: no concern that dodd-frank on the one hand, goes too far, as some people say, and on the other hand, as others say, doesn't go far enough? >> no, i don't think in any area it goes too far. as to the regulators, i would have been worried if mitt romney had been elected because he would have appointed non- regulators. but i think the people in place under president obama who helped write the law believe in it. the common theme in the bill, as i saw it, was to say to a great extent, people who make decisions that are risky, which should be done in the business communit

in the country. do you think that's a good idea? >> i believe that was offered by former president bill clinton as the solution to violence also. those decisions though need to be made at the local level. i was a school board member for over 20 years too. that's something that local districts need to look at and look at their needs and how they're to take care of all the needs of those students whether it's safety or education. >> woodruff: the last thing, deb fischer, the folks who endorse you-- people like sarah palin, very conservative groups who believe that the federal government should play a very limited role, as limited a role as possible, in this country-- what does that mean to you? what should there be less of? (+* ++ +*) it's the 2013 hyundi >> well, i appreciated the support of governor palin who came in towards the end of the primary. i didn't have the suppo of clubs of growth. >> woodruff: my mistake. i thought you did. >> and i didn't have at a party support either. i do believe in limited government. i believe government has certain priorities, and elected officials need to dec
